Five Pella area gardens will be on display Saturday and Sunday for the Marion County Master Gardeners 2010 Garden Tour. The self-guided tours can take place in any order, with a ten dollar admission taken at the first garden visited. The admission will be donated to Habitat for Humanity of Marion County, and will give visitors a map to the remaining locations. The map is good for all weekend.

Children are admitted free to the garden tour, and guests are requested to not bring dogs along. The gardens on the tour are located at 1111 Sunset Avenue, 1083 Highway 102, 1007 East 3rd Street, 104 Bluegill Court, and 1361 Northwest Drive – all in the Pella area. The gardens will be open from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Saturday and 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. Sunday.
